Associate Professor, Applied Mathematics and Statistics
College Engineering and Applied Sciences
Pei Fen is a brilliant researcher, an excellent educator and a devoted faculty member in her service to the department, the college, the university and the broad research community beyond – as has been confirmed overwhelmingly by both inside and outside reviewers during her recent promotion to the rank of associate professor with tenure. Some renowned reviewers even called for the consideration of early promotion to full professor in the near future if such winning streak should continue, which in my estimation, it will.
As her mentor, I am extremely proud of and delighted to see her multitude of accomplishments in terms of research publications, fundraising, teaching of both undergraduate and graduate students, and mentoring of doctoral students, ever since her arrival at Stony Brook University. Pei Fen has accomplished all these, through hard work and perseverance. To accomplish what she has accomplished academically is more arduous given her duty as a mother (of a lovely six-year old). She is an inspiration to us all.
